Global system performance prediction – from the design of the device to its final operational efficiency – using the most efficient design tools and methods, is key for organizations to innovate.

FluxMotor is a flexible standalone software tool focusing on the pre-design of electric rotating machines. It enables the user to design and create motors from standard or customized parts, as well as to intuitively add windings and materials to run a selection of tests and compare machine behavior.

Addressing a broad range of users, FluxMotor is easy to use with an efficient working environment allowing for the creation and performance evaluation of an electric motor within a few minutes.
